I have only had the ring a few weeks and not planning on wearing it until 6/21/13. So my review at this moment is based on the look and how it felt the one time i tried it on. It is beautifully constructed, satin finish is soft feeling, very lightweight. The wood is very nice, interesting natural design and unique, which is what i wanted. Very happy with its look and feel, the size was just right. Its durability, longevity has yet to be tested.

Raw yet polished. The power of this Titanium and Burled Red Oak Ring comes from its contradictions. The impressive continuous inlay is composed entirely of wood taken from a rare red oak burl. The irregular grain structure of these unique pieces create a hypnotic, almost stormy effect and will never look the same way twice, no matter how many times you look. The furious textures of the inlay are perfectly offset by the simplicity and elegance of the titanium sidewalls. Whether you're looking for a striking red oak wedding ring or just something that's attractively different, you won't find anything to match the energetic refinement of this one-of-kind piece of oak jewelry. Each of our Burled Red Oak Rings is handcrafted for each client, and if you would like us to make one just for you, you're in the right place. First, select any size between 4 and 12.5. If you would like a size outside of this range, simply choose "Custom Size" then note what you need on your order -- we will be happy to accommodate you. This ring also comes in widths ranging from 5mm to 9mm, with the width of the inlay scaled up or down proportionately. Also, don't forget that the titanium outlay is available with a polished, brushed, or satin metal finish. Additional Features: There's no such thing as an "ordinary" purchase at Titanium-Buzz, because each ring we offer is the purchase of a lifetime. That's why, as we do with nearly all of our selections, this ring includes free engraving of up to 25 characters on the inside of the band. This ring also qualifies for free domestic ground shipping! About This Design: What makes the inlay of our Titanium and Burled Red Oak Ring special? It's all about the wood! The Red oak is one of the most important North American hardwoods and is found only in the Eastern United States and Southeastern Canada. It's used in everything from furniture to railroad ties, and its rich coloring puts it on a level far above many other hardwoods. But this goes even further. By using wood only taken from burls -- rare knobby growths that form on some trees -- we get spectacular grain structures and patterns that literally can't be found anywhere else. Each ring is a type of all-natural art and is as unique as a snowflake. To protect your investment in this masterpiece, we've coated the inlay with a special sealant that locks out moisture and other contaminants. The titanium sidewalls also provide unsurpassed protection that won't tarnish or scratch like other metals. In fact, we assemble each ring using a patent pending process that is exclusive to these styles. And, if you would like to replace the inlay one day, you can. Please contact our customer service to learn more about inlay replacement. Like the swirls and chaotic artistry of these rings?
